Infinity Ward Hints At Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare Battle Royale

Infinity Ward's a fan of larger player counts.


Despite previous reports of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare not having a battle royale mode, developers Infinity Ward have hinted that the upcoming first-person shooter may include the popular mode. In fact, there are "many" unnannounced multiplayer modes for the Modern Warfare reboot.

In a rapid-fire interview with Game Informer, art director Joel Emslie did not confirm or deny whether Modern Warfare will have a battle royale mode. However, after being asked if the game will feature the mode, Emslie said, "We'll have to wait and see." Emslie then noted that he's a fan of both the battle royale genre and larger player counts, with his personal favorite game mode being Ground War.

Game Informer also asked if there are any multiplayer modes that have yet to be announced. "There are many," Emslie confirmed. He did not specify what "many" amounts to. There are plenty modes that we know of thus far: the gritty single-player campaign, Gunfight, Ground War, Spec Ops, and a swath of traditional multiplayer modes (including the likes of Capture the Flag, Team Deathmatch, Search and Destroy, and more).

Also out of Game Informer is a new addition to the Modern Warfare experience. Tamagunchis, a virtual pet similar to the Tamagotchis from the '90s, add a lighthearted touch to the game's multiplayer experience. And Gunsmithing also introduces deeper weapon customization tools to multiplayer when it launches on October 25 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
